Happy 70th Birthday Thomas the Train!

Happy 70th Birthday, Thomas! Thomas the Tank Engine will be celebrating his birthday on September 27 at the SM Mall of Asia Atrium with all the kids and the young at heart who have known and came to love this Really Useful Engine.  Check out the poster below to find out how you can be part of the upcoming festivities.

Thomas' 70th Birthday Bash

I have discovered Thomas and Friends through my nephew. His toddler years were filled with watching the adventures of the blue steam engine on TV and having toys, bags and stuff bearing his favorite train. The fascination and endearment was passed on to my own little boy. Louiji enjoys watching Thomas and Friends and gets giddy each time I sing its theme song. My nephew has passed on his precious Thomas toys to my son who simply loves playing with them. The bulky Thomas train in the photo below is my toddler’s favorite. This chunky, battery-operated train moves and turns around whenever it bumps into an object. It keeps our little one on his toes as he chase Thomas around.

Big Smile with Thomas

Louiji was amazed with his little Thomas train. He was inspecting the bottom to find out where the steaming sound and music comes from. This piece actually comes with a railway but we rarely take it out because the little boy delights in seeing Thomas move around the house.

Checking out Thomas

Louiji has his own favorites among the Thomas and Friends episodes. He watches them over and over. I like it that the show goes beyond providing entertainment for the kids. Each episode conveys the value of friendship, teamwork and fair play.
